We were one of the first guinea pigs to host Exchange 2010 on Nutanix. our cluster consists of a 3451 and a 6220.

We have 1 exchange server tied to each of the 3451 nodes, 4 in total. Each server is configured with 4 2 TB databases. 2 active, 2 passive. We noticed recently as we migrated a majority of our users to the new environment that we are getting alarms that we are hitting a threshold of disk space per host. Not sure what we're missing here.

In Nutanix cluster, we try to keep data local for VM's running. In the screenshot I see that your first host is running to 86% utlization. It will continue to store VM data locally until it hits 95% threshold limit and afterwards any new data will be wrtitten to other nodes which are part of Nutanix cluster.

I would suggest to balance the storage used in each node by balancing VM's running on each node.

Also can you also share the screenshot of the SSD disk usage for your cluster ?
